Review

what students say: "As a self confessed cookery dummy I found this book to be extremely useful. Its fun, easy to use, interesting and even my MUM uses it...a bargain price.A" "This book was a present just before leaving for uni. I have now finished my 2nd year and its my bible! ...the recipes are all really easy and inexpensive." "A beautifully illustrated book .. It's easy to follow & you don't need tons of equipment - not even scales!" "This book is absolutely amazing. I started university not being able to cook and now I cook shepherd's pie, curry and full roast dinners just a year afterwards." "This book has revolutionized my eating habits! A menu for a week and planning what to buy will revolutionize spending habits too." "If your child is starting uni please buy them this book because I really do not know how I would have got through uni without it." what mums say: "Beware! May reduce phone calls home...From what I can gather, this book has been in daily use in my daughter's new household for the last 6 weeks... she's almost stopped phoning up to say How do I cook this?!" "I sent my lad off to university with a variety of student cookery books alongside a slow cooker. The slow cooker remains unused as are the other books - apart from this one. He shares a house with 5 lads, they all use this book." "My son never used to do any cooking, but now he cooks for himself every day! My daughter starts University in October so I got one for her too." "I will definitely buy a few more as gifts for friends' sons and daughters - excellent value!" "Joy May's guide teaches you how to use affordable and easy-to-get ingredients to make simple recipes that are a lot more exciting than the usual pasta or beans on toast" From Metro's Five Essential ReadsA" for students --Various Customers

About the Author

I studied Art and Design at Loughborough College of Art and Design. Among other things, I now use my creativity to write cookbooks. I have been married to Ron for over 30 years and we have two sons, Ben and Tim, who have now graduated from Uni. When my sister and I were quite young, probably 5 and 6 years old, we started to cook, mainly cakes, biscuits and simple meals. By the time I was 12, we would cook Sunday lunch. I love this heritage and am passionate about good food. There is nothing I love more than having a house full of people to feed. I started out by writing out first student cookbook back in 2001. Since then we have written new editions including vegetarian versions of the original best seller. For students we have also written 101 Questions Students ask about Cooking and Nosh for Graduates. Would you believe, some of our original students are now married with children (like our son Ben, who has 3 children) and so we have written Nosh for Busy Mums and Dads in the same easy, quick and user-friendly style.

A friend of mine brought this book over to my house the other day. His lad has recently started Uni, can't even boil an egg. He left the book with me to have a look through to see if I thought it was simple enough for his lad to use.
I am a pensioner and have lived on my own for years, enjoy cooking and am a pretty good cook but for convenience have got into the habit of buying good quality supermarket premium microwaveable. There has always been a lot of washing up and cleaning of equipment associated with my cooking, which is a bit of a hassle. Not any more.

I returned the book to my pal this morning, then ordered a copy for myself immediately.

This book is not only useful to students, it is also a very handy reminder to pensioners of some of the delicious dishes we used to make but have long since forgotten in these microwave days. Dishes that are quick and easy to make with a minimum of fuss and kitchen hassle. I haven't used anything remotely mechanical or electrical in the kitchen for a fortnight bar the stove/oven.

And lets not forget the costs. My food bill has dropped dramatically, which is of great importance to pensioners, who almost invariably have to watch the costs.

Right, I'm off to prepare my 3rd Bacon, cheese and potato bake (this fornight), with a few added herbs and spices of choice.

Thank you Joy May for this marvelous little book, cheap at the price.

I haven't got great cooking skills and my cupboard contains average Joe items. Far too often I've bought cooking books only to find the recipes go something along the lines of 'you will need 500g zebra, humpback whale fin and the stare of a trout. Mix together then leave to simmer for 24 hours in the ridge of an emu's frown before transferring to your cauldron.' I'm just upgrading from frozen pizzas and don't want to be left with half a zebra in the fridge every time I cook a meal. This book gives meal planners and suggests recipes with the food you'll have left over.
Well done, excellent simple book.

As I'm moving out in September to start university, I started collecting cookbooks in preparation and this was one of them. I bought it because it's aimed at students and would have recipes that are more affordable than say Jamie Oliver's books.

It's very affordable and offers simple measurements so new cooks will find this incredibly easy to use. Compared to other cookbooks, every recipe has a photograph which is always helpful. We eat with our eyes after all! Personally, as I'm not a complete novice at cooking I found it rather frustrating that the solution to every recipe included a tin of beans. I really hate baked beans! It's also a bit of a pain that the majority of the meals are for 2 to share. I can understand that they expect students to make loads of one type of food and eat it for the rest of the week but I was hoping for a few good recipes suitable for one serving. However, the recipes are varied and cater for a lot of different tastes and occasions.

What I believe to be the best thing about this book is the beginning. It gives useful information about how long to store food, what it looks/smells like when it's gone off, reheating/storing food, boiling/roasting times, a few common problems students have, etc etc. You wouldn't believe how many of my friends have texted me asking for this information since they left last September! For 18 year old, mothered students (sorry!), this is perfect. As I'm 20 and have been cooking and baking for years, it's a bit of a miss for me. I will be passing it on to my helpless boyfriend though.

Format: Paperback
This is a brilliant book - as a vegetarian, I bought it to supplement all the recipes in the vegetarian version. It was a good investment - there are so many recipes which have vegetarian versions or which can be readily vegetarian-ised. The salad recipes are super & the baking chapter is brilliant.
Thankyou, Joy, for an extremely useful book which is in such constant use in my house that it is always on my worktop & has never found its way to the bookshelf!

I'm a 40 year old bloke who's culinary skills were limited to say the least. When I moved to a new flat last year, I was horrified to realise the kitchen contained (gasp ) no microwave! How was I going cook for myself? I knew I had to finally learn the basics of cooking, and a trip to my bookshop saw me discover this excellent book. The recipes are simple, cheap and delicious, plus each dish has a colour photo so you know what the meal is supposed to look like. The sister Vegetarian Nosh book is excellent too for cooking for your veggie friends. Highly recommended

We bought the early edition of this book for a grandson six years ago and have just given the updated version to his sister. This review is written by my wife. The three grandchildren in this family all went away to boarding school at 13 so had very little chance to develop any cookery skills and as the book was written by a Mother for her son on his departure to University it really does cover all the things a first time cook away from home needs to know, including basic ingredients to keep in the cupboard and essential cooking aids. It is also written wth some humour and sneaky tips on helping yourself to things from home to stoke your own supplies. It seems to me that the new edition has probably built on the experiences of the author's son and gained from it. My grandaughter has been trying out some of the recipes and has pronounced herself delighted with the book.
